Epoxies are also very customizable
A long time ago, in a land far away, epoxy floor coatings did not exist! Before epoxies came into the market, homeowners typically attempted to protect their garage floor with paint. Although paint was able to provide a very moderate amount of protection, it is nothing compared to epoxy, mostly because it adds absolutely no structural integrity to the concrete itself.
Concrete has a porous nature which enables paint to absorb into the concrete. However, due to this porous nature, other fluids are easily absorbed into concrete which cause very unsightly stains. These stains are often impossible to repair as well which is very unfortunate for any homeowner. Paint can help to make these stains less severe, but it cannot prevent them.
Although paint seems like a decently quick fix for all of concrete?s problems, it requires a lot of maintenance. This can cause the cost to add up over time, especially because the garage faces a lot of wear and tear. This means that you might have to reapply your concrete paint multiple times each year.
Luckily, epoxies were introduced into the marketplace not too long ago. Epoxy coatings have changed the future of concrete protection because they provide many different qualities that concrete needs to last a long time while still looking its best. In order to ensure that epoxies add structural integrity to the floor, it is imperative to call in a professional to apply the epoxy. Proper application from a professional is the only way to make sure that your floor is given the best, most protective coverage as possible.
With a range of transparencies, colors and textures, you can customize your floors completely. Logos and symbols can also be added. Whether it?s your home or your business, you can pick and choose your floors from start to finish. Your epoxy will then be applied after a thorough cleaning and preparing of your floors. The preparation is almost more important than the application itself which is why it must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before the epoxy is applied.
Thankfully, epoxies have transformed how we protect our concrete. Although paint provided a few benefits, epoxy provides next level protection, customization, and durability. Investing in an epoxy will save a lot of time and expense over the years because it won?t need a new application for quite some time. This is why it is so much better now that epoxy has entered the market.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help ? not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below ? do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we?ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
